I've just seen a copy of this years credit paper and it is extremely easy! It was soooo much easier than the 2005 one that I sat. So, does it usually follow suit that the Higher Maths paper will be relatively ok?

No, I don't think so smile.gif

As far as I know, it's a completely different group of people that write the Credit and Higher papers, so there's no way to compare them really.

Anyway, I don't think they decide to "write a hard paper" one year, after people found the previous year's one easy.

It doesn't matter how hard the paper is - just keep your cool, and do the best you can. Everyone's in the same boat smile.gif

Last years credit was just a beast, hence why the pass went down to like 31-32% for a 2

Yeah, you were right, I'm looking at the grade boundaries just now and in the paper two for reasoning and evaluation last year you needed 14/45 for a 2, which is just over 31%

i realised how to do the badge question as soon as i came out the exam.. it was pythagoras, and u had to know the 3,4,5 triangle..and yeh by looking at this years credit paper, it was far easier than ours! sad.gif
